You can hear this recording at the Internet Archive:


IF IT DON'T FIT (DON'T FORCE IT)
As sung by Barrel House Annie, 1937.

1. If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'll make your mama mad.
If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'd only get in bad.
Changed the lock 'cause you stayed out till four.
Your key didn't fit; you tried to break down the door.
If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'll make your mama mad.

2. If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'll make your mama mad.
If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'd only get in bad.
Now it may stretch; it may not tear at all,
But you'll never back that big mule up in my stall.
If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'll make your mama mad.

3. If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'll make your mama mad.
If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'll only get in bad.
You don't seem to understand my position:
I'll never let you put my works out of commission.
If it don't fit, don't force it,
'Cause you'll make your mama mad, oh, yeah,
'Cause you'll make your mama mad.
